A Navy servicemember needs pro bono assistance with a divorce. Recently, the servicemember’s wife threatened the life of the servicemember and the wife’s biological children. The wife was subsequently arrested and placed in a mental health facility for a week. She has since gone to another state, and the servicemember is taking care of the wife’s biological children. The servicemember has not adopted either child, but she is listed on the birth certificate of the younger child. The servicemember would like a divorce and for the children to be cared for by their mother (if she gets the help she needs) or grandmother (wife’s mother).
